Robert Louis Stevenson Museum and Grave

The Scottish author of Treasure Island and other classics retired to Samoa for his health but fell deeply in love with island life. The affection was reciprocal: Locals nicknamed Stevenson "Tusitala" (Teller of Tales). Today an excellent museum occupies his former residence and celebrates this connection. Outside, follow "The Road of the Loving Heart" path to the writer's tomb on Mount Vaea. Its inscription reads: "Here he lies where he longed to be/Home is the sailor, home from sea/And the hunter home from the hill."
